The category for this article is List of Methods.

In cubing, a method is the system used to solve a puzzle. There is a great variety in cubing methods, for speedsolving the 3x3x3 cube the most used method is the Fridrich Method followed by the Petrus Method and the Roux Method.

There are also partial methods that solves certain "steps" of the general method, like the OLL and PLL methods used in Fridrich.
